Why choose Garnish?
Garnish is not an accredited higher education provider, but rather our focus is on training you to develop the practical skills and experience you need to build a career in music production. We are a boutique school and you will learn from active industry professionals in small groups- giving you a personalised learning experience. We encourage a culture of mentoring, enabling you to draw on your instructors’ experiences and get their feedback on your music.
The Garnish Industry Diploma offers you a total of 360 hours of learning time and 24 hour access to the Garnish studio when you’re not in class. Class time will be hands on and the syllabus is comprised of modules in the following subjects: –
Make the music you love
Throughout the course you will be encouraged and supported to write your own music as a priority. Our instructors’ tastes and experience are varied, so they are able to support in a number of genres from EDM to singer/songwriter.
Everyone who completes the course will receive a certificate of completion, however, students can also opt to take an RSL graded examination in music production. This is a great way to reinforce what you’ve learnt on the course, benchmark your skill level and gain some UCAS points.

Garnish Music London does not have formal entry criteria. We understand that people begin their musical journeys in different ways and we want to support that.
However, in order to ensure that our students get the most from their course, they should be able to demonstrate at least two of the following…
In order to participate in the course, we would expect you to have a basic idea of music production. If you’ve played around with a DAW, you’ll know enough; if you’re an instrumentalist, that’s also sufficient – we’re here to teach you the rest. As part of the application process, we will conduct an interview with you to determine that you’re a good fit and on the same page as your fellow learners!
As a Garnish Learner, you will be able to access the school in order to use the class space for your own sessions when you have been inducted and oriented.
The course includes two full days at Goldsmith Music Studios, where you will be guided by their engineers, gain experience with high-end vintage gear and have the opportunity to record what you’ve written in a professional environment.
We have our very own boutique sample label Lazerdisk Sound. Garnish students get all of our packs (mostly written and produced by Garnish instructors) for free, and an exclusive pack just for Garnish students not sold on the site! It’s recorded individual keys from Mark Ronson’s Mellotron M4000D, which our label chief Zack Johnson meticulously recorded in Mark’s studio in Hollywood. Thank you Zack and Mark!
Garnish is not an accredited higher education institution and we are unable to support with VISA applications. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure you have an appropriate VISA in place for the duration of your course.
Want to learn FL Studio, or brush up on Sound Design again in the future? No problem, because on completion, all Academy learners at Garnish will get a free VIP membership for our shorter music production courses, worldwide. This means that you can take up to three music production courses, with just the registration fee to pay at any of our participating locations (London, Miami, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Online), subject to availability, with no cap on when you’d like to take each course. Our offer is valid as long as there is availability at your chosen participating school.
